Contrary to public opinion, lemon is not the best source of vitamin C – much
more of this vitamin is contained in e.g. broccoli, oranges or peppers.
However, it is a fruit, which is worthy of consuming in everyday diet. It
contains e.g. vitamins from B group, but also potassium, magnesium and iron as
well as beta-carotene and rutin, which seals lymphatic vessels.
Apart from adding lemons to tea and preparing desserts, lemonades and
other cool drinks, this fruit can be used in a specific treatment, which
allegedly not only rejuvenates but also reduces hunger and cleanses your body.
It could also be helpful in such disorders as osteoporosis, rheumatism, kidney
stones and gallstones, anaemia and diabetes.
Preventive lemon treatment developed by Michał Tombak recommends drinking freshly squeezed lemon juice without sugar for 10 days. The first day you need to drink juice from 1 lemon, day by day increasing the amount of juice by one fruit until the fifth day. Next, starting from the sixth day, when you need to drink juice from 5 lemons, you have to decrease the number of lemons by one fruit so that on the tenth day you can drink juice from one lemon. Lemon treatment is relatively safe, cheap and easily available. Maybe it is worth trying this way of natural cleansing your body, especially that the effects can be reportedly very good.
